Igbos Abandoned Philip Effiong Who Died A Biafra Rebel, Ojukwu Rewarded - Ekefre by deji17: 9:12pm On Sep 07, 2017
Igbo abandoned Gen Effiong, he died a Biafra rebel - Ojukwu rewarded handsomely.


Igbo, IPOB abandoned Gen Effiong, he died a Biafra rebel Speaking with Vanguard in Uyo,Ekefre chided the Igbo for abandoning Gen. Effiong, the vice president of the defunct Republic of Biafra who died in 2003 without Federal Government amnesty as was accorded Ojukwu. He regretted that “the Igbo are expecting support forgetting that they all looked the other way and allowed Gen. Effiong who made the historic declaration that ended the bloody civil war to live and die a Biafra rebel while Ojukwu died a Nigerian Army General.

“Gen. Philip Effiong, an Ibiono Ibom man, was the Vice President to Ojukwu. Mr. M. U. Akpan, the Secretary to the Government of Biafra (SGB) was also from Ibiono. Gen. Effiong signed the instrument of surrender but when the Igbo were talking of payment of gratuity and pension, they only presented Gen. Ojukwu and refused to mention Gen. Effiong.

“He lived and died a Biafran military officer but Ojukwu’s rank was restored with salaries and gratuity paid from 1966. Today, the Igbo are complaining of marginalization and oppression, forgetting that justice and injustice should not be selective.”
He appealed to the Federal Government to make adequate compensation for the family of the late Gen. Effiong, noting that in the spirit of true reconciliation and justice, what was done to Ojukwu should be done to Gen. Effiong.

On agitation by IPOB On agitation by IPOB, Ekefre said the agitation was ill-timed, stressing that “the Igbo had President Goodluck Jonathan from South-South, Senate President fromSouth-East, Secretary to the Government of the Federation government, Minister of Finance and Gen. Azubike Ihejirika as Chief of Army Staff, and hey could not ask for their republic then.”

He lamented that the South- south, South East and South West are not united which is why they all went to the National Conference with different agenda. “When President Jonathan inaugurated the national conference, the Ibos went to the conference with the Ibos agenda, Yoruba when with their own agenda while the core south south went with their various ethic agenda while the entire north with Hausa, Fulani, Kanuri and even the TiVs went with one northern agenda.

They needed power which they have got. You can’t get what you didn’t ask for” The politician lamented that even though Jonathan had reasons for the conference he inaugurated but he could not put together moral courage to implement even a portion of the recommendations until he was voted out of office.

Only a foolish fly follows a corpse into the grave.

Gen. Effiong signed the instrument of surrender but when the Igbo were talking of payment of gratuity and pension, they only presented Gen. Ojukwu and refused to mention Gen. Effiong.

I'm sure Gen. Effiong will be bitten his fingers in regret now inside grave tongue

I don't see Biafra coming into reality with inclusion of the SOUTH SOUTH STATES. Igbos will be the majority hence the ruling class. An IJAW,EFIK etc won't be belittled by an Igbo man. Some of there kins men have made the art of fraud,selfishness,deceit,greed popular. When General Gowon created new states for the southern states,it was welcomed wholeheartedly. That was why the SS where not in support of BIAFRA then and even now. Because of marginalization the experienced in the defunct eastern region

This is a complete and unimaginable falsehood. Igbo business men, home and abroad rewarded General Effiong with huge cash, but the selfless and strict Biafran deputy leader turned it down. Biafra is established on self sacrifice and not self aggrandizement as you have in Nigeria where every Fulani and Afonja, like IBB , tinubu, mko , obasanjo and Buhari thrive on the oppression and blood draining of their wretched subjects. The poor now resort to skull mining and rituals for survival.

What about Igbos indigenous to your so called South-South states? What happens to Asaba people, Ibusa people, Okpanam, Oshimili and all the Igbo elements of Delta state?

What about the Igbos of Rivers? Obigbo, Asa, Ndoki, Etche and the rest? What will you say to Minister of Transport and former Governor of Rivers, Chibuike Amaechi, an Ikwerre man who recently said "nobody should deny me my Igbo heritage"

What about the Benue Igbos?


Igbos will be the majority hence the ruling class. An IJAW,EFIK etc won't be belittled by an Igbo man.

People like Nnamdi Kanu and Asari Dokubo are proposing that Biafra becomes a confederation which I believe it should be. Igbos get their Region, Ijaw/Ogoni gets its own Region, Efik/Ibibio get their own Region. Every Region controls 100% of its resources and pays an agreed percentage to the center, nobody will be able to marginalise anybody. It wont even matter who the ruling class are.

Some of there kins men have made the art of fraud,selfishness,deceit,greed popular. When General Gowon created new states for the southern states,it was welcomed wholeheartedly. That was why the SS where not in support of BIAFRA then and even now. Because of marginalization the experienced in the defunct eastern region


Gowon created Rivers state to cause hate between brothers as well as steal the Oil wealth of the people. In the old Eastern Region, the provinces were getting 50% of whatever came out of their land. In Rivers state, they are getting 13%. So who lost at the end of the day?

Effiong was proud to live and die a Biafran. He would not have wanted otherwise.

It is not the responsibility of the Igbos to restore Effiong, even if they wanted to. Igbos are just a fraction of what Biafra represented.

I am an Akwa ibomite and am strongly against Biafra rather I would prefer each region should be separated and allowed to manage its resources, this federal system has done more harm than good, I will also advice other ethnic groups in the niger delta not to join in the quest for Biafra because when Biafra is achieved other minor ethnic groups will also be marginalized, I would prefer that Biafra be given to the Igbo's only, my two cents
